Madison, WI (September 21, 2010)–Pop Sensation Productions was recently introduced to CAD vocal mics while working with high school students for the Launchpad competition.
Every year, Wisconsin has a statewide alternative music competition called Launchpad for bands outside of the traditional classroom ensembles. High school students get the opportunity to vie for a professional TV spot and live appearance at Summerfest, the city’s large outdoor summer festival.
Dustin Boyle, producer, engineer and owner of Pop Sensation Productions in Madison, WI, worked with one of the contestants to produce a six-song CD with an array of professional equipment including CAD microphones.
Commenting on the CAD mics, Boyle said, “We set up a variety of CAD mics in a line and tried them one by one before choosing the Trion 6000 multi-pattern condenser mic and GXL2200 cardioid condenser for vocals. We couldn’t decide which one we liked better, so we ended up using them both together and it sounded amazing!”
“We were floored by the quality of the two mics,” Boyle continued, “especially when we paired them together for one track. The vocal performances stood out and shined and the result was exactly what we were looking for. Incredibly natural and lifelike, as if they were standing right inside the control room, singing to us.”
In addition to the CAD microphones, Boyle’s studio lineup includes Adam Audio A7 studio monitors with Adam Sub8 subwoofer; Alesis Quadraverb 2; Apple G5 with 4 gigs of RAM; a Bellari RP220 dual channel tube pre amp; Denon CDR532 CD Player/Burner combo deck; Avid 003+ running Pro Tools LE 8a; Avid Eleven Rack; Digidesign Command 8; Electrix Warp Factory vocoder; Presonus DigiMax 96K 8-channel preamp; and Presonus Central Station monitor controller.
